The Coolpad Cool Changer S1 was launched yesterday by LeEco’s owned Coolpad and sure the device comes with a premium design. The device is a flagship and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdargon 821 chipset which is backed by 4GB RAM or 6GB RAM, depending on the version. Now you get the chance to see the Cool Changer S1 in all its beauty and features courtesy of these hands on images from IT Home.
The Cool Changer S1 has a 5.5-inch IPS display and utilizes a design with very narrow bezels at the sides. Despite the narrow bezels, there are very tiny black borders on the display which is even unnoticeable despite the white screen.
It should be noted that the Coolpad Cool Changer S1 looks very similar in design to the earlier released Cool1 Dual but without any logo at the back. There is also no physical button on the screen up front but there are three virtual capacitive keys which can only be identified when the display LED comes on. It retains the front white styling on all color variants.
The flagship utilizes an all-metal casing at the back infused with an antenna design said to have been constructed by injection molding process. There is a large near square rear camera at the top centre which has a large 16MP Sony IMX298 sensor onboard. The camera seems to protrude slightly out of the metal body. Just by the side of the camera is the dual LED flash and directly under he camera sits the fingerprint sensor.
The Cool S1 does not have a 3.5mm audio jack onboard instead it uses the USB Type-C interface both for charging and for connecting with the headphone. There is a Harman AKG headset with 3.5mm head which comes with the phone, though. That shouldn’t be a problem as Coolpad did include an adapter that lets owners still use their 3.5mm jack packing headphones.
There is also said to be a powerful Harman Kardon audio stereo system onboard and although we can’t see that, the beautiful audio grills at both sides of the USB port is enough to get us excited about the potential output of the audio system onboard.
The SIM slots are located at the left side of the device while there are the usual capacitive keys like the power button and volume rocker at the right side of the device. The edges were not left without a touch of class as the Cool Changer S1 has well chamfered edges which should aid one-handed operation. And then at 7.5mm thick, it sure is an easy one to hold with one hand. If you still haven’t got an idea of the Coolpad Cool Changer S1 price, check out our launch post for price details.
